Fusion assists bush fire ravaged regions

Fusion Training Solutions is reaching out to assist those in training and employment throughout bushfire-ravaged areas on the NSW South Coast.

Fusion CEO Andrew Park said the NSW Government initiative – in assistance with Fuson – was a “win-win” for everyone involved.

“The Government is supporting industries and communities needing more skilled workers to rebuild communities and support displaced workers or business severely impacted by the bushfires through funding various training courses,” he said.

A wide range of training is available, including chain-sawing, job-seeking skills, plan skills development, safe work practices, tree felling, and white card (construction).

The courses offered by Fusion include ‘Work Safety at Heights’, ‘Construction’, ‘Plan Skills Development’ in the Merimbula region, and ‘Chain Saw and Fell Trees’ in the Cooma region.

A State Government spokesperson said the support from Fusion Training Solutions was invaluable towards these communities.

“Employers have reported a significant downturn in business or lost revenue impacting their ability to retain their apprentices or trainees due to the bushfires,” the spokesperson said.

“Learners and employers have taken time off work, lost equipment or uniforms or have had their employment and studies interrupted by the personal impact from the bushfires.

“This initiative supports local economies through the recovery and rebuilding efforts in both the short and long term.”

Training is available through the Smart and Skilled Targeted Priorities Prevocational and Part Qualifications program.
